This webinar explores the data center’s future role in expanding commercial and industrial (C&I) microgrids—both in North America and the rest of the world. Many data centers already view themselves as protecting mission-critical functions that are fundamental to the digital economy. But they rely on inefficient asset redundancy that can often carry a large carbon footprint. Is there a better way? Yes.
Join Peter Asmus, principal research analyst at Navigant Research, and Andy Haun, microgrid chief technology officer at Schneider Electric, as they explore how advanced microgrids that leverage cleaner onsite assets and the latest IT innovations to create more resilient, efficient, and sustainable networks can be part of the solution. These advanced microgrids can capture new revenue streams and transfer energy from a ledger’s cost side to its profit side. As an example of this process, Schneider Electric describes how its microgrids as a service business model can address long-standing financial barriers to innovation in a sector of the economy that sits at the threshold of the fourth industrial revolution.
